Pump Station Monitoring White Papers and Case Studies

  1. Easy To Digest: H2S Removal Rids City Of Lift Station Odors

    A constant problem in many wastewater collection systems is the formation of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in the lift stations as well as from biofilms further downstream in the delivery piping to the wastewater treatment plant. DO2E representatives suggested that the City of Taylorville (IL) use their proprietary digesters equipped with an ozone (O3) capability to remove this problem from our system.

  2. Sticking with Innovation That Works

    With a population of about 15,000, Steinbach is the third largest city in Manitoba and one of the fastest growing areas in Canada. The current system has been operating since 1993, an eternity in the world of technology. Because the wastewater department was already familiar with operating the existing Xylem/Flygt M&C SCADA system with Aquaview software and APP controllers, they decided to inquire what new technologies the company could offer.

  3. Clogs Draw a “Get Out of Jail Free” Card

    Although by no means overwhelming, clogging problems in a county prison wastewater treatment system had simply become a nuisance, and it was time to take action with new technology to solve the problem. Read the full case study to learn more.

  4. No Compromise On Reliability: A WWTP Turns On A Dime

    Once discovering its main pump station was at risk, a critical Canadian wastewater treatment plant quickly set up a large bypass pumping system to allow the replacement of pump motors.

  5. Big Savings Near The Big Easy

    A progressive private utilities company in Louisiana was chomping at the bit to try new pump station technology that would eliminate clogs and unscheduled maintenance, all the while saving power.

  6. Chronic Clogging Bows To Groundbreaking Technology

    The Suffolk County Department of Public Works Stony Brook Pump Station was facing on-going interruptions to pumping operations as a result of “ragging”—a common challenge in wastewater pumping where a build-up of fibrous materials leads to frequent pump blockages.

  7. Chronic Clogging Problems Solved And Energy Usage Halved At Heathrow Airport

    London’s Heathrow Airport is one of Europe’s busiest airports catering for more than 200,000 passengers each day with an average of 1,200 flights arriving and departing from the airport daily. Heathrow Airport Water Services Department has an extensive network of 120 pumping stations to manage and they agreed to install and trial Xylem’s new state-of-the-art Flygt wastewater pumping system in an effort to solve chronic clogging issues at one of the airport’s wastewater pumping stations.

  8. Flygt Concertor Starts Generating Orders Before Official Launch On The Market

    Operators of a municipal wastewater pumping station in the rural town of Lomma on Sweden’s south-western coast agreed to install and trial a revolutionary new wastewater pumping system in an effort to solve clogging issues at the pump station.

  9. Constant Sewage Spills Elimated At Sultan Qaboos University Station

    Operators of a wastewater pumping station at Sultan Qaboos University in Oman were facing serious clogging issues, having to frequently lift the station’s pump and manually remove waste solids and grease build-up.Furthermore, as the station couldn’t handle the flow during peak hours, it was not unusual to have overflows that would reach the adjacent roads.

  10. Clogging Solution Is Crystal Clear In Crystal Lake

    The city of Crystal Lake, IL, was able to parlay a longterm solid relationship with a major pump manufacturer into a clogging solution for one pump station, cost-saving standardization and reduced inventory across its remaining pump stations, and significant energy savings.
